General School Mission

"THE MISSION The curriculum for the Early Education Children?s Room reflects the belief that children learn through their play. The classrooms are defined by areas which allow children to explore their interests and develop social, cognitive, emotional and physical skills at their own pace.
The King Street Preschool Programs are a strong example of prevention programs. We understand that healthy intervention in a young child?s life will have tremendous rewards in later years. A child who is academically and socially ready for kindergarten will experience the first of many levels of success. This foundation of success is what develops strong and positive self-esteem in children. Simply stated, the definition of self-esteem is ?I am lovable. I am capable.? Our early education programs launch children who feel that they are lovable and capable.
